About the Artist
Ho Lai, AWARD Exhibitor, British Ceramics Biennial 2021
Ho Lai is a ceramic artist from Hong Kong, based in London UK. Her work explores the contemporary nature of ceramics, experimenting with the materials and processes involved in its creation. She finds poetics in the transformation of material through working in the approach both subversive and experimental. The interrogation of an idea, colour combinations and material experimentation are prominent in her practice. Lai attained MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art (2019) and was awarded the Grocer’s Hall Scholarship during her study. Upon graduation, she exhibited at the British Ceramics Biennial FRESH and has since widely participated in various exhibitions. She is currently working in her studio at Cockpit Arts Deptford, located in the south-eastern part of London.
